Today's Weather: Dreary

Another dark, damp, dank, dreary day for Chicago. Off and on rain showers coupled with highs in the mid 40s will give us an unseasonable chill for mid-October. If there's any glimmer of hope, it's that by Monday we could crack 70 degrees once more. Still, those warmer summer days are a distant memory far too soon. We dig the autumn, but were hoping for a gentler transition. Tonight, the chance of rain continues with lows in the lower 40s. Also, with the fears over the spread of H1N1, perhaps it's best to point out that today is Global Handwashing Day. Good hygiene, folks. That's the key.
